Germany offers to represent Israel in some Muslim countries

Navideshahed- Germany has reportedly offered Israel to become its diplomatic and consular representative mainly in Muslim countries where Tel Aviv has no embassy.

The offer would be discussed during an upcoming visit by German Chancellor Angela Merkel to al-Quds (Jerusalem).
The German leader is scheduled to visit al-Quds on February 24 with her cabinet for consultations with Israeli officials over the matter.
Merkel is expected to sign a deal that will prepare the ground for offering consular services to Israelis in countries such as Indonesia or Malaysia.
Yakov Hadas-Handelsman, Israel’s ambassador to Berlin said on Friday that the proposal was “a special message”? from Germany.
The Israeli envoy also underscored the importance of bilateral ties between Germany and Tel Aviv.
Most Muslim countries do not recognize Israel and have no diplomatic relations with it.
Last month, Germany\\\\\\\'s Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen hailed the country\\\\\\\'s “special relationship”? with Israel.
Gernamy has provided Israel with sophisticated weapons and military tools such as submarines in recent years.
In 2013, Israel launched its fifth Dolphin-class submarine, which was constructed to undertake long-range classified missions and carry missiles armed with nuclear warheads, at a shipyard in northern Germany.
Israel’s first three Dolphin-class submarines are believed to be some of the most sophisticated diesel-electric submarines in the world. The fourth submarine, the INS Tanin, the first of the new generation Dolphin II submarines, was delivered in May 2012.
Germany donated the first two submarines after the first Persian Gulf War and agreed to cover a third of the cost of the third one.
In March 2012, Israel signed a contract for a sixth Dolphin-class submarine, to be delivered in a few years.
